The volume emphasizes families and children whose primary
recourse to services has been through publicly funded child welfare
agencies. The book considers historical areas of service--foster
care and adoptions, in-home family centered services,
child-protective services, and residential services--where social
work has an important role. Authors also address how child welfare
programs interface with the many fields of practice in which child
and family services are provided or that involve substantial
numbers of social work programs, such as services to adolescent
parents, child mental health, education, and juvenile justice
agencies. This new edition will continue to serve as a fundamental
introduction for new practitioners, as well as summary of recent
developments for experienced policymakers. administrators and
